Potential students, keen to pursue a degree at UKZN, recently attended the 2020 Access Course Open Day held at UKZN Extenderd Learning (UEL) Howard College offices based on the Howard College campus.
The learners, some accompanied by parents were eager to find out more about the Access courses on offer. Students and parents were given the opportunity to address all the queries related to the Access/bridging courses offered at UEL. The Access courses available include Foundation Maths, Foundation Maths Online, Foundation Physics, Mathematical Literacy Upgrade to Grade 12 Mathematics, Certificate in Business Administration, and Certificate in Public Administration.
